not reacted to that speech by mitt romney. but last night at a major fund-raiser in los angeles, he was flexing his foreign policy muscles right off the top of his remarks, he was talking about how he ended the war in iraq, how he's winding down the war in afghanistan, how he's gone after terrorists, how he got osama bin laden. those are just some examples, says his campaign, of strong leadership. as president obama honored civil rights icon cesar chavez -- >> the movement he helped to lead was sustained by a generation of organizers who stood up and spoke out and urged others to do the same. >> reporter: his campaign worked to shred gop nominee mitt romney's foreign policy chops, rolling out this hard-hitting web ad reminding voters of what they called stumbles on the world stage. >> governor romney not too long ago said, the russian federation is our number one strategic threat. come on, think. that isn't the case. >> reporter: and this tv ad now running in the important battleground state of virginia. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said ro
debate wednesday night, he appeared lackluster compared to more aggressive romney. obama hit back against his opponent during a rally in denver, accusing romney of backtracking over tax cuts for the wealthy. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [laughter] but it could not have been in romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last not said he did not know anything about that. >> mitt romney tried to capitalize on his high marks from the debate as he campaigned in the swing state of virginia. some critics noted obama fell to ask from the about his famous 47% comment that nearly half of americans believe they are victims entitled to government support. during a fox news appearance thursday night, sean hannity asked romney how he would have responded if obama had brought it up. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you say something that
romney, paul ryan avoiding specifics. we will see what happened to mr. romney when asked specifics wednesday night. president obama may get tough questions about how the white house has handled the aftermath of the libya killings. listen to senior campaign advisor david axelrod on "state of the union" with candy crowley. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened but when you're the responsible party, when you're the administration, you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believes. this is being thoroughly investigated. >> he's saying president obama as early as the morning after the attacks in benghazi identified the killings as an act of terror. in that rose garden speech that he's referring to, however, the president only mentions the word terror once, and it wasn't until the end of that speech. also, it comes after the president speaks in broad terms, mentioning 9/11 and the wars in iraq and afghanistan. you can decide for yourself if his one use of that word terror is directly defining what happened in be
has to shake things up, wednesday night, doesn't he. >> he is going to. every time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well, laying out his vision very clearly and also contrasting himself and his vision with whoever his opponent was at that time. i have absolute confidence, george, all you will be shaking your head it is a brand new race. jenna: new jersey governor chris christie, making a bold prediction, how about that? the bold prediction related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how big of a deal are the first debates really? >> well it can be a dig deal, jenna. of course governor c
romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might even be responsible for murdering ambassador stevens. talking points believes many voters are still persuadable. that support for the president is thin among some independents. recent rasmussen poll says 42% of those backing the president are locked in stone. that gives the governor some room tomorrow night. but he needs to be surgical in making his points. that's a memo. now for the top story, is u.s. foreign policy in trouble? joining us from boston, fox news military analyst, colonel david hunt a
romney in colorado. both prepping for the big debate tomorrow night. remember when newt gingrich clocked the governor in the south carolina debate last spring, romney came back strong in florida. the man who helped prepare the governor for those debates, brett o'donnell joins us now. you really know this turf because you worked for john mccain when he ran against barak obama in 2008 and now in the primary season, you worked for mitt romney. let's assess the governor's strengths and weaknesses as a debater first. strengths? >> well, i think the governor is a very good messenger. he's a good orator, he can deliver a speech. he's very good when he's on message and on offense. as you saw in the debates in florida against newt gingrich when he got on offense, the governor was very effective. when he leans into a debate, he can be pretty effective. >> bill: all right. weakness? >> weaknesses, when he gets -- like most every politician, when he gets defensive, that's when he makes mistakes. the $10,000 bet came when governor romney was being defensive about his health care policy and there have
. the challenger, mitt romney has not been on the show. we have asked him to be on the show. we have -- any night, any time, short notice, whatever he wants, he can be on the show. he's got 39 days. now, i don't want to persuade anybody unnecessarily, but if he's not here in 39 days, don't vote for him. >> bill: no, not much of a chance that the majority of dave's audience will be supporting romney, but we do feel letterman's pain 'cause we're trying to get the governor on "the factor" as well. finally check five, because of all the interest in the upcoming debate this saturday evening between me and jon stewart, we put together a montage of past encounters. do you, jon stewart, have obama remorse? >> i think people feel a disappointment in that there was a sense that oh, jesus will walk on water and now you're looking like, oh, look that, it's just treading water. >> bill: you said he's let you down a couple of times when he didn't do a far left thing that you wanted. >> how far left am i? >> bill: it depends on the night. it depends on the ratings. >> you don't know much about me, do you. >> bi
. >> bill: not likely. as we discuss on the factor last night, libertyian situation and foreign policy in general has not arrested the attention of casual voters who remain locked into the economy and in many cases, ideology. mitt romney would be smart to seize on the libyan controversy as part of an overall competence challenge to mr. obama. if the economy remains bad and it does just check outearnings from ford and gm today, and america's overseas strategy is wobbling, which is seems to be, governor romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might ev
after night. i can't always say the same. >> meanwhile, the romney campaign is on the offense, taking friday's september jobs report which the white house touts as a triumph and turning that against the president. listen. >> this economy is not doing well and the fact that you have a white house celebrating an unemployment rate of 7.8% with 23 million americans out of work or unemployed or underemployed, tells you a lot about the failure of this administration's policies. >> this, of course, leading up to thursday's first and only vice presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. democratic congressman tim ryan joins us this morning from the crucial swing state of ohio where an appeals court decided on friday that early voting will be reinstated for the three days that lead up to election day. nice to see you. thank you for taking with us. >> good to be with you. >> appreciate that. let's talk a gallup poll to start with. you can see in the time since the debate, it looks as if mitt romney has gained points. president obama has lost points. i think you guys have the wrong poll
of their first presidential debate wednesday night in denver. on monday, romney told supporters he looks forward to making his case. >> it will span the entire month. we will describe our respective views and i believe the people of colorado will choose a better way forward for our country. we cannot afford four more years. >> tune in on wednesday when we host a special expanded presidential debate in the evening, pausing after the questions to candidate romney and president obama, to allow equal responses from third-party candidates jill stein of the green party and rocky anderson of the justice party. we begin our broadcast 8:30 p.m. standard time. the republican national committee has reportedly ended its bid to register new voters ahead of the election. after a company hired to run the program was cited with election fraud. in the republican national committee has cancelled its contract with the firm which was reportedly the only vendor it had hired to register voters. despite a history of similar scandals, republicans have paid firms millions of dollars, including $1.3 million in florida. p
debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time ago about the concerns he has over his opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot understand why this country that i gave my life for feels that they should tax me twice for social security. they already taxed me for that and they take a third of it back when they give me that check. >> you
